Jim Carrey: In Living Color reboot?


Jim Carrey is hopping on the reboot bandwagon.

His sketch series, “In Living Color,” went off the air 26 years ago, but the politically outspoken comedian thinks now would be the perfect time to revive it.

“That show really needs to happen! That show needs to exist,” Carrey told “Entertainment Tonight.” “Especially now, man. There’s so much to eat up and spit out so I’d love to see it reconstitute itself in another form.”

Carrey appeared on the show from 1990 to 1994 alongside other stars such as David Alan Grier, Damon Wayans, Jamie Foxx, Keenan Ivory Wayans and Marlon Wayans . Carrey said he’d be happy to participate in the reboot should it ever happen.

“I’d go back and uh hang out with ’em,” Carrey said. “Of course I would!”

Carrey is set to return to TV for the first time since “In Living Color” in the new Showtime series “Kidding.”

He is a scumbag.

How many years of reboots to you think we have to wait, before we can something new?

“His sketch series”???

Ah no.

Also if they have the fly girls I’m all for it.

Most likely it will be the “Fly boys and girls and others”.

Anti Vaccine scum.

Fuck him.

My fav sketch was the bum offering less money. Good lord thats a lot ofmoney.

Let me tell you something!

BruteDion - "His sketch series"???

Ah no.

7 black people and 2 whites in the original roster.

More like Jim Carrey’s “Comedy Plantation”, IMO.

BruteDion - "His sketch series"???

Ah no.

Yeah…wow, I never point out cultural insensitivities but In Living Color broke some ground as an African American sketch comedy show that hit the mainstream and the guy writing the article attributes the show to one of like 2 white people on the show?  Haha. 

As an aside, just given Jim’s comment "there is souch going on right now" I’m going to guess a reboot would be more overly political and unfunny garbage.  Like or hate Trump, his presidency has absolutely killed comedy.

Keenen might’ve been the mastermind, but Damon with Homie D. Clown, Handiman and Anton Jackson stole the show. Jim played many great roles, Fire Marshall Bill being his most memorable.

Perhaps he’s right. The time for a reboot is now, when so many people are hung up on words.

And yeah, bring back the Fly Girls. Jennifer Lopez brought big booty to the small screen.

Would be great if they keep in line with the spirit of the original... 

Sounds to me though that Carey just wants an outlet to trash trump.

Hooray. More political comedy. So funny. So revolutionary. Makes such a difference and is sure to change society blah blah blah. Fuck off

That show would never fly today, unless of course they dumb it down to meet the PC demands of our time.
